WORLD RELIGIONS

It is thought that the Planet Earth is more than 4.5 billion years old and there are many theories about how it all began. Most Scientists believe that there was a 'big bang' or explosion at the beginning of the Universe and that energy and matter are still expanding outwards, away from the centre. Scientists now believe that everything, including us is made out of atoms. This means that all things begin as invisible energy and some become solid matter.

In the distant past ancient civilisations didn't worship one God, but many. Our ancestors believed that there were individual God's and Goddesses for the powers of nature, the seasons and the weather. Such beliefs were handed down from generation to generation through myths and legends. There were Greek and Roman God's, Celtic, Aztec, Norse, Egyptian, Sun God's, Earth Goddesses, Native American etc.

Today, people have a variety of different views about the universe and its source, which some of us call God. At the heart of all religions is a belief in something bigger and more powerful than humans, an invisible being who looks after us. Sadly, religious enthusiasm has caused the death of millions of people. These days most faith systems teach their followers to understand and accept other people's beliefs. Many see their spiritual journey as a way of learning how to forgive, to love unconditionally, and to be compassionate towards others.

Can we gain Spiritual Energy by dedicating some time to Spiritual Contemplative Exercises ? ... Yes, we can build up spiritual stamina if we REALLY want to ... Do You ? How can we make a simple plan that is easy to follow on a daily basis ?

FOCUS ON RELIGIONS

The World today seems to be filled with darkness, pain and grief. Many people are suffering from physical illness, heart-sickness, and are worn and weary from their spiritual search. They are generally slaves to a job, family responsibilities, and social duties. The unrest that is sweeping the world is understandable as Humankind have nothing to cling to as an inner support.

In the absense of knowledge the masses have turned to religions founded by people with deep spiritual insight. The problems usually occur when the founders pass on as they leave their work to immature followers, who are generally confused by it. This tends to lead to differing opinions, tension and fragmentation.

Religions are formal teachings belonging to the growth of certain races during periods of human thought and evolution. Each religion served its purpose in its own day and time. But each must give way to something more complete as humanity advances. Some of the largest Religions or Faith systems are :

HINDUISM is the religion of the majority of people in India, it's principle God's are Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu and it's Holy books are the Vedas and Upanishads. The main feature is cosmic consciousness, which is an enlightenment of the intellectual senses.

BUDDHISM is based on the teachings of a Nepalese Prince - Siddhartha Gautama, who became the Buddha. He lived about 500 years B.C. and his teachings emphasised salvation, contemplation, self-examination and the ten fold path.

CHRISTIANITY was created by St. Paul based on the teachings of Jesus Christ and it's Holy book is the Bible - the New Testament and the gospels are based on the teachings of love and right action.

CONFUCIANISM was founded by Confucius and is based on a system of ethical rules and the proper management of human affairs. He lived in the 6th Century B.C. and was a Government official.

TAOISM arose in China about the 6th Century B.C. and is based on the Tao-Te-Ching by the legendary philosopher Lao-Tzu. Tao means path and it emphasises quiet contemplation on the path of nature.

ISLAMISM was founded by Mohammed, who was born in Mecca during the 6th Century A.D. The four duties are : recitation of prayers, observance of Ramadan, self-examination, and a period of fasting one month long. Followers are expected to make a pilgrimage and pray 5 times a day facing Mecca.

JUDAISM The followers worship a God called Jehovah, who is the supreme being for all orthodox Jews. The sacred book is the Old Testament, particularly the Torah and the Talmud. The mystical teachings of the Jews is the Cabbalah, a doctrine containing mystical and metaphysical interpretations of Jewish scripture concerning their Supreme Deity, man, and spiritual beings.

ZOROASTRIANISM was developed in Eastern Persia by Zarathustra, who became known as Zoroaster. The chief sacred text is the Zend Avesta, a collection of writings. There Supreme Lord is called Ahura-Mazda or Ormuzd and the theme is the ethical and dualistic struggle between good and evil, or light and darkness. Out of this order came the famed order of the Magi, the wise men of the East.

SIKHISM was founde by Guru Nanak during the 15th Century, who was a contempory of Kabir, a famed Hindu mystic. The sacred book of the Sikhs is the Granth Sahib. Guru Nanak is said to have gained a high state of consciousness.

THEOSOPHY is a system of religious, philosophical teachings and the personal experiences of Madame Blavatsky. Together they sum up the wisdom and teachings of the East. She was an authority on the Great White Brotherhood, based in the Himalayas.

CHRISTIAN SCIENCE was founded by Mary Baker Eddy as a general protest against the unhappiness with modern Christianity. She believed that all sin, pain, sickness and evil were only mental illusions. Keys to Science and Health is a doctrine of metaphysical statements to correct ill health in all departments.

SHINTOISM was an oral teaching until the 5th Century A.D. It is a set of rituals and customs involving pilgrimages, festivals, and the worship of several God's. It grew from nature worship, was later influenced by Buddhism and became the state religion of Japan. The emphasis is on ceremonial life and bodily cleanliness. A Sun Goddess was long known as the chief deity, the ruler of heaven until around the 7th Century, when the Emperor became the immortal head.

JAINISM goes back to antiquity in India. The last of its great teachers called "Tirthankaras" was Mahavira, who lived during the 6th Century B.C. It embraces many philosophical concepts of Indian religions and its main principle is non-violence towards all living things. Its sacred writings the Shvetambara is concerned with karma and balance.

SPIRITUALISM the central theme is communication, through a medium, between this world and the inner worlds. The departed soul goes to their Summerland after this life.

There are MANY other belief systems such as Sufism, Native American beliefs, Shamanism, Theosophy, New Age, and the Mystery Cults etc.

The best way to decide on YOUR path is to ask Yourself " What am I drawn to"? There your answers will be found !

PLANES OF EXISTENCE

The Greek Masters - Apollonius, Dionysius, Pythagorus, Socrates, Aristotle and Plato all studied the art of Spirit. Those powerful leaders ... Rama, Krishna, Hermes, Moses and Jesus have all been students of various mystery schools of the ancient adepts such as the Essenes and the Magi.

According to many of the Spiritual and Religious movements, there are five planes of existence in which we can experience our being. Within these are many sub-planes and other levels we can visit to gain valuable lessons in life.

PHYSICAL PLANE is the material world and is the first step to the secret inner kingdom. Here we experience solid matter, science and day-to-day events. It is the illusion of reality (maya) as everything appears solid.

ASTRAL PLANE is the source of psychic phenomena, ghosts, flying saucers, spirits etc and is the highest plane reached by astral projection and occult sciences.

CAUSAL PLANE is where we can experience our seed body and do Akashic readings of our memory patterns from past lives. This gives us the ability to look for the source of trouble we may encounter in this life.

MENTAL PLANE is the source of intellect, philosophy, ethics, moral teachings and religions. It is here we can experience the universal mind that many religions and sects worship as the true God power. But it is thought to be part of the illusion to prevent soul from reaching the heavenly planes ... its home. The Etheric Plane at the top of this plane is where we experience the subconscious or unconscious and is the source of primitive thought and instinct.

--------------

This is the dividing line between the lower and upper worlds where we separate the psychic regions from the spiritual planes of existence. Within the lower worlds it is said we encounter the problems of Karma and reincarnation, which is the burden every soul must bear during its training. In the upper worlds we can gain freedom and self-realisation which allows soul to re-enter God-Consciousness.

--------------

SOUL PLANE is the first of the pure spiritual worlds where the light is said to be more brilliant than the imagination can comprehend. This is where we can have experiences that open us to Divine Spirit and eventually we can approach the Divine Essence, the living reality, the ocean of love and mercy ... God. There are many other planes of existence beyond this and some explorers of the spiritual worlds list 50 or more planes within each region.

SELF EXAMINATION

All religions and Spiritual movements use the tool of self examination. This is where we look closely at different aspects of our being and attempt to correct the flaws. We can only do this if we approach our examination with discipline, reality and truth.

To be successful in our Spiritual search we must spend more time in diagnosis of ourselves. This helps us decide what Action is necessary to develop Self-Control. Some of the things we could look at are :

1 Denial of Reality where we get absorbed and occupied with other things or we become ill.

2 Attempting to prove our behaviour is rational, worthy of self and social approval.

3 Placing blame for our difficulties onto others.

4 Repressing or preventing dangerous thoughts from entering the mind.

5 Regressing or retreating to earlier development levels that require less mature responses.

6 Feelings of worth by identifying ourselves with persons or institutions of high-standing.

7 Covering up weaknessess by emphasising desirable traits.

8 Releasing pent-up anger on something that is less dangerous than those who may fight back.

9 Reducing involvement and withdrawing into passivity to protect ourselves from emotional injury.

10 Bolstering our ego for self-worth despite failure, by seeking sympathy from others.
